Camping, Chapel Porth and The World Bellyboard Championships

  During the summer, we spent numerous occasions on Chapel Porth Beach, west of St Agnes. I love this beach because of its clear waters and dramatic landscape. Due to it being so close to my new home, my girlfriend and I have got into the habit of getting up early to go and have a fry up on this gorgeous beach. It’s always so tranquil at that time of day, and it’s great to watch the early morning surfers…

Epic North Coast Kayak Trip – Part Two

  This post is the final instalment about a day so awesome it takes up two posts. If you haven’t already, go here and read part one first! … It was a great day for spotting wildlife, we had already seen a sun fish (I was gutted I didn’t get a photo of it), seals, oyster catchers, cormorants, and oodles of jellyfish.

We’ve had some really memorable days including trips to Devon, watching the red arrows from the water and lots and lots of trips to the beach. One of the best days of the summer and probably the entire year had to be last week.…

My Kitchen Renovation – Part One – Ripping Out The Old

  When I first went to view my house, way back at the beginning of the year, I could tell even then that the kitchen was going to be the biggest job. A couple of months later, in April, I completed and got the keys to the property. On the first few trips over to the house I imagined what the kitchen would look like when finished and measured up so we could start designing the layout and thinking about…
